Quebec Home For Sale Under $260,000 Has A 'Semi-Intimate Bathroom' (PHOTOS)

This charming Quebec home takes the term "open concept" to a new level.

The $259,900 cottage for sale in Sainte-Adèle offers a loft-style layout and wooden construction, "typical of les Pays d'en Haut," explained owner Daniel Paradis.

Constructed in the 1930s, 3991 chemin du Mont-Sauvage contains a literal piece of Quebec's history, he said, as it's been reinforced with a steel beam salvaged from the Duplessis Bridge in Trois-Rivières, which tragically collapsed in 1951.

But it's the "semi-intimate" washroom that truly makes this home one-of-a-kind, as it's very much part of the living room.

"The toilet is the talk of the town," said Paradis. "It is possible to move or close it for more privacy. Otherwise, the outhouse is still in place."

The house did have walls enclosing the washroom, plus many others for bedrooms and the kitchen when it was home to a family of six from 1960 to 2018, he said, but Paradis chose to knock them down in favour of a loft-style design to maximize the space: "The open bath in front of a fire is magical."

The property also boasts a nine-foot hand-dug basement with exposed stone walls, a central wood stove in the "living-kitchen-dining area," and 51,000 square feet of land complete with a mature forest, apple trees, rose bushes, a detached garage and outhouse.
